$6,000 Signing Bonuses At Burger King in New Orleans

Yes, you read that headline right. Burger King in New Orleans is offering up to a $6,000 signing bonus for new hires.

Rally’s has a hand scrawled sign in the window saying they will pay 10 bucks per hour to flip burgers.

Nearly every business in town has a help wanted sign up, most have several.

CDL drivers are in such short supply, my wife’s company is paying $600 finders fees to whoever can find one. (Not to mention what they are paying the drivers)

Meanwhile our public officials are whining 24/7 in the media that contracts are going to out of state companies who will hire out of state workers. I really wonder what planet they are on. There are simply not enough people in town to fill the jobs we have!

The problem is that many of our people lost everything and have no place to live in town. We don’t need politicians whining about out of state hires, we need temporary housing. Desperately.
